. >> zing. >> ouch. >> let's get right to our panel now. we're joined by dana mill bank of the "washington post," msnbc contributor, maria teresa kumar, and william cohen, a columnist for the bloomberg view. dana, i have to start with you. in your column today you write that his attacks on the president were respectful but defendant deft, referring to mr. romney. he joined obama deep in the weeds of policy and demonstrated a command of substance. now, dana, you know that i have nothing but a high regard for you, but how much of a command of substance is it for a man to disavow his own policies and not even know that there are 12 million unemployed in this nation and not 23 million? >> well, martin, it takes a real command of policy to be able to -- >> to lie? >> to manipulate it to your advantage. >> you're saying that his command of policies, just so i understand it, dana, because your columns are important, his command of policy allowed him to tell an absolute litany of lies last night? >> you know what? you know what allowed him to tell an absolute litany of lies? that was p
